The Charlotte Hornets travel to Indiana to face the Pacers on NBA Primetime - watch live on Sky Sports Arena on Sunday night at 11pm.

As the new home of the NBA in the UK, Sky Sports are showing more than 170 live games across the season, including 42 in the weekend primetime slots.

That slate continues this weekend on Sunday...

Charlotte Hornets @ Indiana Pacers, Sky Sports Arena, Sunday at 11pm

The inconsistent Hornets (21-23) currently occupy the eighth and final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference but are coming under pressure from the Orlando Magic, Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards for ownership of that spot.

Their franchise star, point guard Kemba Walker, has carried them offensively this season and made big shots to earn the Hornets wins over seemingly superior opponents including the San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets.

Maddeningly for their fans, Charlotte's season has also be characterised by bad losses to some of the weakest teams in the league including the New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks.

The Pacers (29-15) sit third in the East and have kept pace with Conference heavyweights the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks over the opening half of the season, despite their best players - Victor Oladipo, Myles Turner - missing time due to injury.

The Pacers' success thus far has been built on game-winning contributions from across their roster. Leading scorer Oladipo has been backed up by Turner, Bojan Bogdanovic, Thaddeus Young and Sixth Man of the Year contender Domantas Sabonis. They also boast the NBA's third-best defense.
